From the Publisher
"Expands on standard studies of social movements by offering a collection of writings that is exclusively anthropological in nature and global in its focus - thereby serving as an invaluable tool for instructors and students alike."
"I would highly recommend the book for development scholars." Development and Change
“Between global processes and local contexts, a great variety of social movements are at work. This careful and theoretically illuminating selection of case studies shows June Nash’s masterful grasp of a quickly growing field in anthropology.” Ulf Hannerz, Stockholm University
“An exciting volume! The contributors write from first-hand ethnographic knowledge of struggles in the anti-globalization movement, including the indigenous, peasants, women, industrial and urban workers, and even Islamic movements as they work to achieve a more equitable, democratic society.” Helen Safa, University of Florida
“With characteristic excellence and originality, June Nash traces a particular history in the making: how localized struggles worldwide are emerging globally in response to the devastations of economic corporate globalization.” Saskia Sassen, author of Globalization and its Discontents
